'[PIC] Recommendations'

I bought a pic burner almost a year ago on ebay.. seemed nice but required
a second piece that I never bought so no real work done. Willing to consider
the $40 loss and seeking new recommendations.

What do you all recommend now as a pic burner?

My requests are low... all I plan to do is write code, burn to PIC and
interface serially.

Microchip PICkit 2 at US$35 (plus shipping) should be fine for you.

A Pickit 2 "?clone?" is what I bought.. granted I hear it's nice. But
requires some kind of attachment to do inter circuit programming?!?..

Granted I'm old school pic, without being a pic guy.. when I first heard and
was excited about this.. you bought a programmer, you plugged the chip into
a socket, programmed it and was done.

Then I waited, bought a recommeded board on ebay, but once I acquired it
(still in static bag) it requires some other attachment for ICP.

Worth dishing out for what you recommended? Or should I just get the ICP
module?

BTW to note, I'm not an EE guy. I'm a programmer, interested in EE/embedded
systems.

>From my point of view, I want to program, flash, and create/learn as little
EE as possible to send/receive i/o from my device

PS. Then again I have been interested in VRML for FPGA boards, but that is
an entirely different thread :)

Well worth it. No added attachments needed, no sockets, etc. Programming
requires a 6 pin header (easy to come by - Molex 22-03-2061) and you can put
one on every project, or just use a breadboard for a 'fit them all" separate
programmer...

You could even convert it to one of those screw terminal strips (needs 5, 6
including the 'not used pin') and just run short jumper wires if you wanted.
Very easy!

Maybe you should wait for PICKIT 3

Hi Josh,
Do you have some drawings / pics of your current programmer? Maybe we can help you get that one working, is this other module just a cable assembly to allow you to connect to the PIC?
Anyway the EPE electronics magazine is having a promotion where if you by there magazine for November or December you can get a PICKit2 programmer/debugger which should be plenty for what you need, see bellow:

"Everyday Practical Electronics magazine and Microchip have teamed up to offer you the chance to buy a PICkit 2 Debug Express Kit (DV164121) at an amazing discount price of only £9.99 including delivery! In the November and December issues of EPE, find out how to purchase this kit via microchipDIRECT using a unique code contained in EPE. As this is an unprecedented price the offer is limited to one per household, UK addresses only.

Both issues contain constructional projects using the PICkit 2 - the November issue showing how to design a Theremin and the December issue teaching you how to make an mTouch capacitive switch.

PICkit 2 is a pocket sized complete programmer and debugger which allows easy in-circuit development of selected PIC® microcontrollers. Any personal computer can become a development station using the supplied MPLAB® IDE development tool for writing code, debugging and programming devices. A single USB port is used to interface with the PICkit 2 and control your PIC project, enabling you to halt, single step and break point your code on your target board.

To find out about how to buy your PICkit 2 Debug Express Kit at this special price, make sure you buy the November or December issue of EPE, available from WHSmiths or by visiting EPE's website http://www.epemag.co.uk. You can also pay for and download a digital copy of the magazine from http://www.epemag.com."


Hope it helps

Best regards

Is it still on eBay ? Do you have a reference ?
Maybe it's just something you've missunderstood...

Then you should get someone else to do the project for you.  Trying to mess
with micrcontrollers while striving to understand as little as possible is
not going provide the desired result.

You can try our BB0703 or BB0703+.  http://www.auelectronics.com/System-PICkit2.htm

Comparing with the popular BB0703, the BB0703+ has a buck/boost regulator circuit which secures +5V power supply for programming at any normal USB voltage (4.1V to 5.5V) input.

Also One of the BB0703+ Family member "BB0703+256K" naturally support 256K of EEPROM for PTG feature.

There are also a 2-in-1 mini-Lab and a 3-in-1 mini-lab released recently. Feel free to check it out:
http://www.auelectronics.com/Hardware-MiniLab.htm

Some unique features on the mini-Labs are listed as:
1. Dual bidirectional I2C/SMBus voltage-level translator
2. Three On-board voltage supplies: 5V, 3.3V, 2.5V, 100 mA Max.
3. mini-Lab test circuits: 6-LEDs, 3 pull-up, 2 pull-down, 1 capacitor (support on-chip regulator for PIC24 and dsPIC33) for
debugging/testing

other features are listed as:
1. Jump wire technology guarantee no worry about pin-compatibility
for future PIC chips.
2. ZIF technology Support both SOIC-SMD and DIP/PDIP through-hole components.
3. 10uf cap included on Vdd
4. Connectors are compatible with Microchip ICD2/ICD3/RealICE/PICki2, and Au Group Electronics BB0703/BB0703+
5. Can program Flash-based PIC Microcontroller, KEELOQ HCS, MCP250xx and EEPROMs

I bought a pic burner almost a year ago on ebay.. seemed nice but required
a second piece that I never bought so no real work done. Willing to consider

What do you all recommend now as a pic burner?
